After employing with the cutwork method in the last chapter , we now have to use
reverse appliqué in traditional and contemporary methods.
First I made a sample of reverse appliqué using a star pattern and 3 layers of fabric.
This design was then translated into a traditional reverse appliqué like the
sample that this didn‘t was reversapplqué but appliqué
I used silk on the bottom layer than copper silk, cotton, brocat and another layer of cotton above. I have really took care to prevent cutting the next lower layer. Probably I had to use the larger spacing between the layers for additional stiching . I first saw this possibility now, during I write my power
After I had frayed some samples for the exercises of chapter 11 I once more started working on the little reverse appliqué samples and frayed some edges of two blocks. I like the result more in comparison
with the first one
The next one is a star shape , worked in slashed reverse appliqué. I layered 12 fabric quarter on top of each other. It mad an effort to cut through the several layers without damaging the underneath layer.
For the multicoloured ripple effect I used two different shapes to get a more
complex effect. The layers of the upper block were a mix with painted tissue paper,
cotton, brocat and silk
